MACBETH is Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy, one of his shortest plays and one of his most unremittingly gruesome creations. MACBETH examines how dreams become nightmares when a man releases fear into his world. (‘Notes on this production’-from the program on sale in the foyer)
This production by Abrahamse and Meyer, presented by a company of 6 male actors, demonstrates the brilliance of the writing of a playwriter of centuries ago, which resonates even today. Demonstrating how far we’ve come and how little we’ve learnt in 400 years.
The press has unanimously raved about this production, calling it “passionate and chilling” and “..not an easy watch, but…a rewarding one!”
